they have to walk a fine line, too? >> they have got to crack down. president obama did a good job of reminding the egyptians this week that it's one thing to be angry about a video, but it's something else than to be lax in protecting an embassy on your ground. there is no ambiguity on this point. same time, when there is a video like this, which i think is terrible, and i think more americans should be saying it is terrible, when that kind of thing happens, we need to expect some protests, but we also need to expect local governments to take care of our people abroad. >> do you see a connection with 9/11, or no? >> i'm not so sure. i think the way you began the whole piece, this sort of thing may happen, that this sort of thing is in a way, you know, looking for a pretext, looking for an excuse. we have to expect that. i don't know if it was 9/11, but there will be targets of opportunity. there will be things that happen that get people angry, and whether it's another anniversary of something, whether it is just some other incident like this one, we just have to be ready. and the
